BOSTON, December 21, 2010—Sapient Global Markets, part of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE) and a leading provider of services to today’s institutional financial and commodity markets participants, is pleased to announce its gold sponsorship support at NPower’s Powerful Connections annual gala held recently in New York City. NPower is a national nonprofit that provides information technology services and training to nonprofits and young adults.
“I was thrilled to see the turnout of support for this amazing organization which helps hundreds of other nonprofits to improve their IT programs, and, in turn, the communities they serve,” said Chip Register, SVP and managing director, Sapient Global Markets. “We look forward to extending our relationship with NPower and more opportunities where we can show our support for their cause.”
NPower's strategy is to reach more nonprofits by engaging more corporate IT leaders. The organization is making powerful connections between socially responsible companies and the nonprofits they serve. Three programs core to its strategy are:
• IT Professional Services, providing the best infrastructure, solutions and consulting expertise to nonprofits at discounted rates.
• Technology Service Corps, helping disconnected young adults find careers in IT.
• The Community Corps, a new national resource to engage thousands of corporate IT volunteers in delivering well-managed, impactful IT solutions to nonprofits large and small.
“We are extremely grateful to Sapient Global Markets for their generous support as a gold sponsor at this year’s gala. Powerful Connections 2010 was attended by more than 450 senior executives from a wide array of Fortune 500 companies. Their support was a magnificent tribute to the IT community. Sapient and our other supporters understand how important our work is and they consistently demonstrate their generosity,” added NPower CEO Stephanie Cuskley.
